Nesquik, Nestle, and Israel Affiliation

Nesquik, owned by the Nestle Company, is one of the world’s most popular chocolate and flavored milk brands. The parent company, Nestle, is a Swiss multinational food and beverage conglomerate, founded in 1866 by Henry Nestle, a German pharmacist of Czech origin. Nestle is recognized globally for its extensive range of products, including baby food, coffee, cereals, pet food, and confectionery. The company has expanded its operations in over 180 countries, employing thousands of people worldwide.

Henry Nestle, the founder of Nestle, was born in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1814. He later moved to Switzerland, where he developed a reputation for his scientific knowledge and expertise in the field of nutrition. In 1867, Nestle invented an infant cereal with milk, which became immensely popular due to its benefits for babies who couldn’t be breastfed. This innovation marked the beginning of the Nestle company’s success. Henry Nestle is widely recognized for his pioneering work in developing infant nutrition and revolutionizing the food industry.

In addition to its ownership of Nesquik, Nestle is also the proud owner of Osem, a prominent food manufacturing company in Israel. The acquisition of Osem in 2015 marked Nestle’s commitment to expanding its presence in the Middle East market. Osem is known for its wide range of products, including snacks, soups, pasta, and breakfast cereals. With the acquisition, Nestle further established its position as a global leader in the food and beverage industry, catering to diverse cultural tastes and preferences.

Nesquik Nestle and Allegations of Israel Support

The Nesquik brand, owned by Nestle, has been accused of supporting Israel and its activities in occupying Palestinian territories. This suspicion arises from the fact that Nestle, the parent company of Nesquik, holds a 50.1% stake in Israeli food maker Osem.

In an official statement released by the renowned Israeli news portal Maariv, it is also mentioned that as part of this agreement, Nestle will invest millions of dollars to operate a new R&D center in Sderot, Israel.

In a recent press release regarding the recent Palestinian fighters’ retaliation that occurred in Israel on October 7, 2023, Nestle, who had just announced the closure of its operations in Israel, will soon reopen its factory.

According to Nestlé’s 2022 annual report, the KitKat maker has seven facilities in Israel, producing confectionery, prepared dishes, powered and liquid beverages, and products in its nutrition and health science division.

From the above facts, it is evident that Nestle is contributing to the economic development of the State of Israel, thus further strengthening its economic power in carrying out colonization activities in Palestinian land.

While Nesquik may not be officially designated on the boycott list as outlined on BDS Movement, it finds itself featured on platforms like Thewitness, which compiles information about companies associated with the Israeli occupation.

  1. Huge shout-out to Gorge in produce this morning around 7:30am we forgot to order pineapple in our order in George was awesome in letting me get five cases without blinking an eye while also helping me

  2. The customer service has greatly declined since I left my last 5 star review. My husband waited for over 2 hours in the automotive section for a battery change. He ended up leaving without any help whatsoever from the employees. I waited for over ten minutes yesterday on a refund for a pick-up purchase that the woman at the customer service desk could not figure out how to complete. The team member never came back to help me, and after 10 minutes of waiting I left.
    I will pay more money for groceries and shop at Safeway or Smith’s before I will go back to this store.

  3. Horrible customer service! Happened to me twice! The first time I waited over an hour for an associate to unlock a bike for me. Spoke to multiple associates and a manager which all said they were going to page for someone to assist me. I waited over an hour at the bicycle section and saw the same associates I requested assistance from and they just kept walking. None checked up to see if anyone ever helped me out. No one ever showed. I figured waited over an hour for help that never was going to show up was too much so I left. Today 11/16/2023 @12pm, I went again for the same bike, mind you its a little bike on the bottom rack so all I needed assistance with was someone unlocking the bike. So it wasn’t like I needed someone to get it from the top rack. Spoke to 2 different managers and 3 different associates. Spent around 40 minutes waiting this time all said someone was coming with the key to open the lock. Again, no one showed. Walmart you need to step up. I understand you need to lock the bicycles up for safety reasons and or theft but at least give all your associates working in the area the keys if not at least the managers. Surely if they’re trusted to be managers then they can be trusted to carry simple bicycle master keys. Do better walmart then you wonder why your sales are plummeting….

  4. The workers are rude for the most part, so many check out lines and only a few are open causing wait lines like it’s so busy. The store is dirty and the costumer service employees are the most hateful, dealing with like pulling teeth from a wild animal.

  5. Absolutely horrible customer service! I bought a Christmas tree there yesterday morning it was half off when I went home to set it up the stand was missing so I took it back to exchange it for the same exact tree and they said that tree was discounted and I had to pay full price for this tree mind you it was exactly the same! So they would not honor their prices!! They put the tree in discount because it was a return missing pieces and they should have stated that on the box!! Of course no one wants to actually help you there so be extremely careful when buying discounted prices from kingman Walmart they are discounted because they are defective not because they are trying to get rid of last year’s product!
